What do you do when WiFi is not available or the Cloud is down?
What if something better than Adobe CC becomes available?What if it allows you, and other similar companies, to do a better job -- significantly faster, easier at less cost.Will you adapt?If not, will you suffer from your competitors who have adapted?
ARM vs x86, iOS vs OSX, Windows vs 'Nix, GUIs vs Tactile Solutions, Legacy Development vs New Approaches, Legacy Apps vs Ad Hoc solutions ... We may be looking at this from too much of a short-term perspective that fails take into account the rapid, and rapidly-accelerating advancements in all the above technology! IMO, the whole tech industry is ripe for disruption that will take years instead of decades!
Mmm ...If there is a dearth of 4k content -- how much available content actually uses or requires the high fps and color and audio of HDMI 2.0https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDMI
IMO, we're seeing a clever marketing match being played out: Apple introduced the New Apple TV ... Amazon countered with the New Fire TV ... Likely, Google will counter with a New ChromeCast TV (or somesuch) ... Once all the features, capabilities, costs are known for these competing products -- I suspect that the biggest [so-called] disadvantage to the New Apple TV will be that it doesn't support 4k Viideo Streaming ...  Even though there is not much 4k content...
I bet it was:The Last Frontier Hotel -- the first casino on the strip.It was still there -- though abandoned after the mob moved into town.
I bet it was:
Fast forward to 1964. I got married and moved to Las Vegas with IBM. We rented a furnished apartment with a gasp Color TV -- the first in our circle of friends. It had only 2 color broadcast channels (4 & 5) on connectection from Los Angeles. Nobody went to Vegas to watch TV.
Hopefully, to bring some sort of perspective to TV screens/sizes and content ... We got the first TV in our neighborhood in 1949 -- The parents said it was for my 10th birthday, but it was really for the entire family. AIR, it cost about $500, a lot of money in those days. It had a 7 inch screen and a pushbutton for each channel (channels 1- 13). There were only 2 channels broadcasting in Minneapolis and the were on channel 4 and channel 5. AIR, they would fire...
I thought I had read somewhere that the A8 (or A8X) had h.265 decoding in hardware -- I surfed, but can't find a link.I think the A9 in iPhone 6S can encode h.265 with 4K video from the camera -- and the new iMovie running on the iPhone 6S can manipulate/edit 4k video.If this is all true, then it would be very attractive, socially, to send short iPhone videos to your New AppleTV via WiFi or the cloud.
